Q:can heat and vent turn on at the same time? or it just one at time? i install two switch one for vent and one for heat.
by|Jun 2, 2024
1 Answer
Answer This Question

A:  There are separate circuits for vent and heat which both require their own 20 Amp switch. There is a damper that will direct airflow depending on whether you are venting only, heating only, or venting and heating simultaneously.

        Q:Can I have the exhaust fan on and off using a wall switch? Or is the entire thing moisture detection controlled? Basically can I run the exhaust fan even if it detects no moisture?
        by|Feb 8, 2024
        1 Answer
        Answer This Question

        A:  This fan is only designed to be used with a standard on/ off switch. The switch leg must be 20 Amps which isn't an option in solid state controls such as timers or condensation sensors, these types of switches are only 15 Amp.

          We had it installed by a professional. We needed heat in our bathroom for 2 months in the winter in Florida. Our bathroom is big and it takes about an hour for it to warm up using the heat function. You can tell the difference. Its a a good choice because to can run the fan as well as the heat at the same time while the shower is on. The unit also requires its own 20 amp circuit.

          hears fast, quiet exhaust fan
          Just got this installed. Its a pretty powerful heater and the exhaust fans works great to keep all the mirrors clear. We spray-painted it matte black to better match the bathroom and put both the fan and heater on timers.

            I won't quote or install anything for my customers but the Panasonic Whisper fan line. They are durable, easy to install and quiet.

            This fan is a great solution to the problem of...
            This fan is a great solution to the problem of a cold master bath with an door-less shower and no available heat. We installed a 2 hour count-down timer for the heater, but the heater automatically turns off anyway after two hours, if you forget to turn it off. So the timer is not necessary, but a good choice if you want to cut down on the time the heater may be left on. Both the heating and ventilating modes can be used at the same time - we found using only the Heat option heats the bathroom better initially, then turning on the Ventilation as well vents the moisture, but still keeps the bathroom warm. We liked having three options with the Pick-a-Flow switch and found the middle, 80 CFM setting works best for us. It’s easy to change this by removing the white grille/cover and sliding the switch to the setting you want. It’s also easy to change the direction of the air flow flow by removing the white grille/cover and re-orienting the black grille blades that sit in a holder on the inside of the cover. There are two screws holding the black blade holder in place - unscrew them to remove the blade holder, lift the blades out, then reorient them as you like, then screw the holder in again. The electrician did have to cut the hole about 1” larger on all sides to install the bracket so we do have some sheetrock repair. But the heater works great, gives us a lot of options as far as the amount and direction of the airflow, and the sheetrock repair is a small price to pay for an otherwise perfect solution.

            The first unit we ordered was defective and did not work at all. The replacement unit worked fine. Does a great job heating up the bathroom!

            Love this heater/vent. Quiet and powerful. Feel the heat at the floor. So much easier to install than the Brian/Nutone. Worth the extra money.
